    @BILL52674 - Sorry but you're wrong. On the back of my cards I have "SEE ID" and only about 40% of the cashiers have asked to see my photo id. That's in many different types of stores from Wal-mart to Target to Belk. That includes restaurants too.

    It is all about entitlement. Folks who think that something they did not earn should be theirs!! This guy is a con man...does not matter his ethnicity, he is a con, red or yellow, black or white...con man!! NO, folks should not leave their cards where they can be easily lifted, BUT, he should not be using something that is not his!! I am sure he goes in, schmoozes with the clerks, acts very comfortable in his skin, struts in and out, because HE IS cool, and lets everyone know it and makes them believe it. He makes the clerk trust him and distracts them so they don't check all that info.. Hope they get him soon and he finds out how cool he isn't!!

    Oh, I didn't realize that all thieves successfully using other people's credit cards were middle aged white men. I also did not realize that it's funny and charming when they do. My mistake. So sorry.

    I'm from the same demographic as this guy and I get asked for my ID every time. Its called writing "See ID" on the back of your card. Amazing if everyone did that, this guy definitely would have been caught by now.

    k.n.oos - If he was from another demographic he would have been asked for ID.

    Either this guy is really stupid or he is purposely doing this to get caught just to show people how easy stealing a credit card etc is when you leave stuff around. Kind of ironic - most places I go these days ask for alternate ID. Also, you have the ability to write on your card See ID - which is what everyone should do to protect their $$.
